About the Author

Bleach is author Tite Kubo's second title. Kubo made his debut with ZombiePowder, a four-volume series for Weekly Shonen Jump. To date, Bleach has been translated into numerous languages and has also inspired an animated TV series that began airing in Japan in 2004. Beginning its serialization in 2001, Bleach is still a mainstay in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump. In 2005, Bleach was awarded the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award in the shonen (boys) category.

Alright, now I see what everyone is talking about. For those of you who may have read my review for the first volume, you know that I was skeptical of the start that Bleach had. I had felt that it wasn't enough to truly be rated as of yet, and thought that the story wasn't exactly the most original ever created. I also wanted a better glimpse of the main character, Ichigo, which the first volume failed to provide. But after reading this second volume, I definitely understand.

This is, simply, an exciting manga to read. The characters, the story, almost everything about this series isn't original, but it's a damn lot of fun. In fact, it's so fun that I think Bleach is doing a kind of reinvention of sorts by enlivening the manga ghost/action story (YuYu Hakusho, Shaman King). And, while this volume doesn't take many more steps than the first did, it definitely made it clear that those steps would eventually pop up somewhere. For now, you just have to enjoy the action and the comedy while meeting some possibly interesting people along the way.

After finishing this volume, which basically explored Ichigo's continued training as a substitute Soul Reaper, I'm actually sorry I gave the first volume a four. It deserved a five and I can't go back now and change that. This is an excellent manga series that promises to only get better. It can appeal to all ages, having more than enough to keep adult manga readers entertained while also not being graphic enough to make it too mature for kids. I highly recommend this manga to fans of Shonen Jump, as the similarities are too many to count.

This volume is a so-so volume in my opinion. Its main purpose is to let the manga reader know Chad/Sado. We learn a bit about Rukia and so on. I would say it is like all introductory volumes. If you liked the first volume by this one.

Bleach, Volume 1 Bought these for my granddaughter for Christmas. Actually they were a fill in gift. To my surprise we found her crouched in a corner reading the first volume with all her other gifts sitting beside her untouched. She loves these books. Shes is 13 years old and these are now her favorite. Will be purchasing the next few in the series.

Poor Ichigo -- if it isn't one tiny life-form causing trouble for him, it's another.

And the second volume of Tite Kubo's "Bleach" is full of such troubles for our scrappy hero and his fiery Soul Reaper ally -- first a gruesome, heartrending story about a particularly nasty Hollow, and then a comedic story about Rukia getting the wrong pill. It also introduces a hilariously oddballish new bunch of supporting characters in a run-down little shop.

As Ichigo and Rukia search for Chad and his parakeet, Ichigo's sister Karin interrupts them with a terrible revelation about the bird. Rukia ends up fighting the grotesque Hollow that's trying to kill the bird, but is crippled by her lack of power -- until the physically powerful Chad comes to help her, despite the fact that he can't see the Hollow.

But the Hollow's true nastiness comes out with a barrage of "leech bombs" aimed at a powerless Rukia -- and threatening the parakeet. Worst of all, it reveals the reason it has been pursuing the parakeet all along -- and the ghastly crimes it committed even before becoming a Hollow.

After all that, Rukia makes a trip to a store with some very special supplies -- including a Pez dispenser with "temporary souls" inside, so Ichigo's body won't lie around when he leaves it. Unfortunately it turns out that the little pil insider is a specially modified soul that doesn't intend to give Ichigo's body up -- and causes quite a bit of mayhem on its own.

The second volume of "Bleach" still has Tite Kubo recognizably getting his bearings -- the art is a bit sketchy at times, and the pacing is a bit uneven.

Tite Kubo, Bleach: Goodbye Parakeet, Goodnight My Sister (Viz, 2001)

Strawberry and Rukia are back in Goodbye Parakeet, Goodnight My Sister. Strawberry's school chum Chad stumbles into Strawberry's father's clinic sporting a mysterious scar on his back, then just as mysteriously disappears. Strawberry and Rukia suspect that Chad's being tailed by a Hollow, an evil spirit tied to the human world until it's dispatched by a soul reaper. But is this Hollow too much for Strawberry to handle alone?

For the second volume, Kubo can do less introducing of characters and more character-building. As the cover of the first one suggested he'd be concentrating on Strawberry, this one suggests he'll concentrate on Rukia, and we are not disappointed. She's quite the charmer, she is, and adding Chad to the mix pretty much guarantees some fireworks between Strawberry and Chad down the line. This is very good stuff. Recommended. *** ½
